Agreed, I see much the same thing here on DA.

Hehe, when I came to your page and saw your stats and noticed you've been here for half as long as me but have uploaded much more than me, then I felt bad about being such a lazy procrastinator. But your journal made me feel better about my little-uploading ways ;]

Haha! Don't ever feel bad for not having uploaded as much as others. I've actually been moving quite a few of mine into scraps lately. A lot of my older work just isn't a appealing as my newer shots. I guess that means that I'm learning something though :)

Yea, need to go though my gallery, too. Actually my very first deviations belongs into scraps as well, but I'm so sentimentally attached to it ;]

I know how you feel. I have the same problem at times.

you're so speaking out of my mind. Many people ask me, why I don't upload this and that, and I always answer, that the picture should have an artistic value to me (or at least an emotional).

I completely agree with you on that point. If a photo doesn't have value to the artist, why post it?

By the way, great feature. I featured his piece [link] in my news article "Great photography with under 20 favs"

Oh yea, the news is a good place to browse. There are great photography features...especially the ones written by me ;)

Thank you. I'm glad that someone else is trying to give him some more exposure too. And I think I've read a lot of the photo features that you've written. They're great, and I really enjoy the work you showcase there. Keep it up!

I definitely agree, but it really is a waste of time to look through the most recent deviations. Look through the most popular photography from the last month or so, you can find all the really popular stuff and find some stuff with less than 100 favs that is still really amazing. Also browsing the popular photography for each category is a really effecient way of browsing. Also a good way of finding favs is looking through the favorites of good photographers or artists you admire, because likely they have good taste and/or similar tastes that you have.

I am the master browser :bow:

I just got your critique request, it should be done in a week or so, I'm pretty backed up right now.

Sometimes I go through the popular photography too, but I really enjoy trying to find those who don't get much attention (like less than 30 fav's or 3000 page views). There are a lot of really great artists who get no attention at all. I agree with you about looking at other artists fav's though. I do that quite a bit as well.

And take your time with the critique request. I'm not in a hurry.

You can scroll through the favs until you reach the under 30 ones, that's how I do my under 20 features and such. Also, when I was a newer deviant, I used to only give favs to the lesser known deviations, but now that I'm one of those people who gets a lot of favs, just letting you know that we still appreciate every fav no matter how many there already are on the deviation.

Nice talkin to ya :P

Thanks for the advice. I guess I just assumed that because a shot can get hundreds of favs in a day or two that one more really doesn't make much of a difference. Where as to the photographer who's shot only gets 20 or so over months, it means much more. It's good to know that the "popular" deviants still care about each comment or fav they receive.

You wouldn't think that you not faving it would make a big difference, but there are many newer deviants with a mindset like yours and that can probably cost a deviation hundreds of favs. Even at my level I still have a hard time favoriting deviations with 200+ favs, but if you love the piece than you really owe it to the artist to hit the button.

:peace:

You're right. Some personally imposed threshold should not prohibit me from giving the deserving piece a fav. DA shouldn't be a popularity contest, and so why should it matter if some photo has 200 favs? That artist probably deserves every one of those, and since I'm here to learn from those better than me, I should start supporting those artists as well.

And with that said, I think I remember a piece from your gallery that I passed by the other day...

-I've really enjoyed this little conversation we've had. Thanks

I defenatly agree with you. I've been thinking the same thought alot lately, seems like people just shoot some random crap just to post it..

I agree with you, when I first joined the dA, I posted quite a lot of pics... but through out my year on the dA, I've been more and more picky about what I submit as a deviation. And sometimes it is really annoying when you see random/daily shots that have not been given thought to but still get submitted on the dA.

I'm glad that I am not the only one who feels this way.
